Reduce the risk

We're being warned to up our security measures -- following a number of thefts in and around the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

The warning comes from Whakatane Police who says a number of thefts have occurred over the past few weeks.

Community Constable Spike Dickey says some of these include a red and white Honda dirt bike, stolen from a garage at Lakeview Place along with a six-foot 10 Hot Buttered surf board, and two decorative garden surfboards taken from a West End Property.

He says another theft has also taken place at St Mathias Anglican Church on Bridge Street.
